Full Grade Level Program

The Full Grade Level Music Program provides a genuine, hands on experience for all 4th and 5th Grade students. Students are taught basic fundamentals such as: music notation, pitch and rhythmic concepts, music appreciation; as well as performance skills on their instrument of choice. The class is taught by a team of three teachers who travel as a group from school to school. Each week the music teachers simultaneously teach the students who are enrolled in one of two choices: Band, or Orchestra. Each student is allowed to select the class and instrument of his/her choice at the beginning of the year. They remain on the same instrument throughout the course of the year. As students continue to progress and improve, they will be given opportunities to perform in various groups including the District’s All-City Honor Band for those who audition and are accepted. By providing all students with equal access to music, we are confident it will help students be more successful in the Arts and encourage them to consider continuing in music programs as they enter middle school and high school, as well as generating a life long appreciation for the Arts as a whole.
